Hello to my favorite community!!

I have a question......Is is possible to remove fondant before serving without peeling off the buttercream?? I have a bride who likes the look of fondant, but does not want to serve it!! icon_confused.gif

I think I would suggest to her that she let the guests decide whether or not to remove their own fondant...or use a fake cake with the fondant on, and serve kitchen cakes. I have heard of the fondant being peeled off before the cake is served, but I can't imagine that it would look appealing in any way. It's kind of like peeling the skin off of fried chicken as you serve it to people.

I do know, though, that Indydebi's buttercream, if you allow it to crust before you put the fondant on, will stay on the cake if the fondant is taken off. I don't spritz it with water before I put the fondant on, and the other day I realized that my design was just not working, and I pulled the fondant off in one piece and tossed it in the trash, and the buttercream was still perfect underneath.

Start with a great tasting fondant. Get Jennifer Dontz's DVD and try her semi homemade fondant recipe. You can roll it thin enough and I've heard it taste great.
